I'm just having a moment because I'm annoyed that none of my FI side is coming to our wedding! I understand the whole money issue and we knew that most of them wouldn't be able to attend, and honestly, he didn't want most of them there (including his mother)...but if it was your kid getting married, wouldn't you want to be there, even if your relationship isn't on the up & up? Wouldn't you regret it later? I've made peace with it and know we don't want any negativity there and that the people who are supposed to be there are going to be. I just feel that money reasons are being used as an excuse, when they really don't want to deal with the real issue....especially since there was 14 months notice! Anyways, I think I've done a pretty good job of making it a non-issue. I just hope that my FI doesn't later regret not patching things up...
and a side note- I think it's crappy that people have to play the victim and they are so good at it, that it actually affects the people that listen to it. Don't people realize there's always 2 sides to every story? Too bad the one that plays the victim is the one with the bigger mouth.
After typing this- NEVER MIND! I'm glad it is just going to be us. I am now reminded why we have seperated ourselves so much from them
